Building and delivering a web service is very different from delivering a desktop application, but it’s increasingly common that’s how users expect services to be driven. This is the approach we took at Camvine when building our CODA digital signage platform. Rather than deliver something written to run on a single machine in a single language for a single environment, we’ve ended up using four languages (down from five at one point), multiple test suites (which doesn’t cover nearly enough), having more interfaces than you can shake a stick at, and having to support many environments (or browsers, as they seem to be called).

This talk covers how we at Camvine went about building our system, some of the issues we’ve battled, and hopefully will highlight some areas that could be potentially interesting areas for research. I’ll also endeavour to avoid discussing too much how customers expect you to deliver cutting edge technology on their 9 year old web browser…
